for the absolute, full, and complete end of slavery. you know, every slave in the united states immediately. and the people who are very active in this movement are often devout protestants, blacks and whites, men and women, people from all parts of the united states. but we must always remember that this is a small number of people. this was never a mainstream movement. this was never a mass movement. and students from our perspective today -- you know, when we look back at this, we would say, well, of course slavery should end. of course slavery should be abolished. you know, all thinking adults today would agree on that. and slavery is illegal everywhere now. the last country to abolish slavery was actually saudi arab arabia, which abolished slavery in 1962. 1962, not 1862. so it's been a long, hard struggle. but slavery is illegal now everywhere. but to say these things in the 1830s and '40s and '50s took a lot of courage. this took a lot of guts. this is not mainstream opinion. this is going against mainstream opinion. these people are at the cutting edge of reform. these people are in

on missile defense. "with the united states on a path to a hollow military" he writes, "we are hardly in a position to exercise leadership in persuading allies to spend more on security. the irresponsible defense cuts are clearing the way for our partners to do even less." still what is remarkable about the policy and afghanistan, republicans are giving the president plenty of room. they don't want to argue any other side to this argument about keeping troops there longer. this is a war that is not longer popular with the men public. the other summit with the european economy on the brain, the summit with the most domestic impact may have happened earlier this weekend when the leaders of the world's wealthiest economies met at camp david. the same debate about growth or austerity, spending or cuts will go farthest to spur economic recovery in the long term is being fought out in europe as well and the white house is happy with that they believe is a more unified message on their message from the western km economies after this weekend. >> as all the leaders here today agreed, growth a
in the southwest section of the state of tennessee. the area was being used as a base of operations by the united states army. the army that disembarked was under the command of ulysses s. grant. the reason the army was in the area was western confederate railroads, principally the memphis and charleston line which linked to chattanooga and from there points to the atlantic seaboard. extremely important railroad for the confederate states of america. it intersected with the north-south known as the mobile and the ohio railroad, which ran from kentucky to the ohio river basin to the gulf of mexico at mobile. secretary of war leroy pope walker of the confederate states called these two railroads the vertebrae of the confederacy. and they intersected, they junctioned just 2 land ward miles to the southwest of pittsburgh landing here in west tennessee. hence the alreadies were viable military targets for the united states force news attempting to put down what they styled a rebellion, which had been the succession of 11 confederate states formally of the united states of america. we were barely less

of the united states? we believe the answer is no. we cannot think of a single firm that would be brought down by its exposure to met life. would you agree with that statement? >> met life has been supervised by the federal reserve because it is a bank holding company. >> they are getting rid of their bank holding company. >> once they get rid of their bank holding company they will no longer be supervised by the federal reserve. >> would they come under the ne regulations? >> met life is a nonbank financial company. i'm fairly certain that more than 85% were not assets in nature. >> right. >> so -- i don't think the council has done an analysis -- i know the council has not done an analysis. >> it is a pretty easy question. >> i don't know whether the council plans to designate met life or not. >> that's not your decision. >> it's not our decision. it's a bank holding company right now, so for the moment the council can't -- >> >> the reason i bring that out is the fact that if you take a large company like met life and you treat them like a bank holding company are you gaining anything? is a
150 years ago. the 37th congress of the united states was arguably the most productive, the most creative, the most farseeing and the most consequenceal in american history. don't take my word for it. here's john nicolai, the grouchy gatekeeper of lincoln's presidential office. the secretary whose job it was to say no on behalf of the busiest man in the world and, boy, was he ever good at it. people called him irascible. that was the only one of the names that i can repeat in -- on c-span. when congress adjourned in mid july after about 7 1/2 months in session, having wrenched american history from the dead end of slavery toward the hard, slow course of freedom, having created our modern monetary and fiscal machinery, having established the united states as a world class military and naval power, having opened the frontier to homesteading settle lers and supported their toil through a bureau -- federal bureau of agriculture. having authorized a rail length from the atlantic to the pacific across the same daunting mountain pass that doomed the donner party, and perhaps most vision
going to be millions and millions of pieces of paper circulating across the united states into every wallet, symbols of prosperity and the future of the country and there ought to be a picture on there. so every denomination, every greenback printed during the civil war had chase's picture on it until he left as treasury secretary. so any other questions? >> one quick question. i'm very encouraged by the 37th congress' accomplishments, but i'm also troubled by the prescription for their success and i was curious if there was anything that we could do other than asking our good friends from south of the mason dixon to kind of leave the session, which governor perry has indicated some desire to do, if there's any other success for relieving gridlock today. >> yes, that's an excellent question. hopefully we will not have such an extreme solution, but i think in the second of my points where i it talked about a compelling agenda this is where i tend to see a way forward. i would argue that part of the fact that we are at such a 50/50 in our country right now, election after election bein

the noose himself for the sole reason that he was an american citizen. the united states consulate at kingston noticed that an american was among the accused and began putting pressure on the british government to release him. this was achieved on the same day that samuel clark, his associate, is also brought up and executed in a similar manner as gordon. the u.s. consul takes menard, whisks him away to kingston and places him on the next ship bound to new orleans. under u.s. government purchase, they bought him the ticket. menard's wife and young child were left behind in kingston. he didn't even have time to say good-bye to her, which comes up later in his career. he does reunite with the family and they are able to make it out of jamaica and to new orleans. when he leaves jamaica, is brought to new orleans, his stock rises instantly in the british empire as an eyewitness to the events that have just happened. this is an excerpt of a letter that he wrote to john stuart mill, the famous english classical liberal, sometimes member of parliament and intellectual leader of the mid-19
, from all over the united states. not just from states with big slave populations, which is what we might expect, but even in free states. in states where slavery had been abolished during a revolution or soon after the revolution there was still a lot of criticism. and we must remember that the past is different from the present. we must remember that the whole spectrum of political opinion is completely different from what it is today. many of the presidents are themselves slave owners. and the president of the united states in the 1830s was a very wealthy slave owner, andrew jackson. we talked about that in an earlier lecture. and jackson denounced abolitionists. he said they were dangerous, they were incendiaries, they were trying to harm the united states, they were trying to harm american society. so this is something that is a hard fight for abolitionists in this generation. and the 19th century has been called by historians the century of emancipation because this fight takes place in many different societies. and it's a hard fight everywhere. and everywhere slave owners fig
and the missouri both had several hundred years of contact with french traders by the time the united states came along. so there were people in the tribe that could read french extremely fluently. speak it, read it, whatever. so the letters that he sent out, he sent them in that language because it was pretty much a universal language at the time. the otos and the missouris were kind of a small tribe in that they had a lot of he enemies and so they were always looking for allies and resources. so when they came along, lewis and clark saw this as them notifying that the united states now owns this territory and you're under our control or whatever. the otos saw that as a very important and potentially powerful ally against their enemies. so this was important to them. and that's probably why they kept it. lewis and clark, they met with several oto leaders at that time. one was big ax and one was big horse. now, this is the certificate of friendship that was given to big ax. and you can see his name right here. >> what does this say? >> it basically just says that the man named big ax is a friend

of the united states thinks this is an important thing and he wanted to affirm it. then on top of that, if we ever have something go to the supreme court, i think it will be very important what the highest office holder in our land thinks about same-sex marriage as well as the polling, as well as how many states have legalized it. we like to pretend that the supreme court lives in a bubble but they do not. those justices live among us. >> woodruff: kerry eleveld, thank you very much. >> thank you. we get two views now on the president's announcement and its significance. evan wolfson is the president and founder of freedom to marry, a leading organization seeking to legalize same-sex marriage in states around the country. and the reverend harry jackson is senior pastor of hope christian church in beltsville, maryland, presiding bishop of the international communion of evangelical churches, and an outspoken opponent of gay marriage. reverend jackson, what does it mean to you what the president said? >> well, i believe he's been dealing with this for a long time and the motivation was to ramp u
not understand why some people think that russia is the no. 1 adversary of the united states, we need russia and afghanistan. russia is helping us to resupply our forces in afghanistan. we have an interest in promoting counter-terrorism cooperation in russia. i was thinking that iran, right now the no. 1 national security issue of the united states is the iranian nuclear future. if you look at that constructs, russia is the most important country at the table for the united states. china will not be helpful. the european powers, of course, have a limited influence. if there is going to be an endgame on iran, where we convince them not to start -- not to stop short, they will have a lot to do with that solution. there will be a very close u.s.- russian interplay and cooperation on iran. meaning that the nato russian relationship is critically important. the promise of 10 years ago when we created the summit in italy, that promise has not been fulfilled. i would think a major order of business for the u.s. and germany is to bring back a good working relationship with the russian government. ve
is recognized for five minutes. mr. fattah: the congress of the united states in a bipartisan vote passed the energy independence and security act of 2007. it was signed into law by president bush. it just suggests that in federal procurement when we seek an energy that the department should use, energy efficient sources, so that we don't rely on unnecessary middle eastern supplies for oil, this removes this requirement. so i hope we would vote against it. this has been a part of the law for a number of years now and has helped save taxpayers money. so i would ask for a no vote on the amendment. the speaker pro tempore: does the gentleman yield back? -- the chair: does the gentleman yield back? mr. fattah: i'd be glad to yield. mr. dicks: this is an effort to overturn a law that was passed in 2007 that says -- try to do the most energy efficient approach to running the government. i mean, i think -- mr. flores: if the gentleman will yield? mr. dicks: i think it's common sense and i urge a no vote on the amendment. the chair: does the gentleman yield his time? mr. fattah: i'd be glad to yi

for individuals who immigrate to the united states on fiance visa and subjected to an abusive relationship. not only does the house bill miss these opportunities but it would remove the current accountality agreement for protections who still have immigrant status. it would inexplicablely reduce violence reporting requirements on colleges and universities. these are all tools widely used and supported by law enforcement officials to help keep communities safe by prosecuting criminals and protecting victims. the house bill would decentralize the violence against women immigration adjudication process, bypassing examiners who are trained in domestic violence and sexual assault instead mandating additional interviews on battered immigrants. these are people who usually have very limited options to protect themselves. we should not complicate the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in the united states. these victims of violence, usually women in the most difficult of circumstances, will be burdened, hindered and discouraged from seek

and concluded after extensive public notice and comment by adopting the guidelines that the united states access board developed in 2004 during the george bush administration. certain members of the hotel industry have claimed that the regulations require all owners to require fixed lifts and this is costly and burdensome and owners who can't afford it will have to shut down their pools or face penalties. these claims are false. as required by congress, the justice department has increased access to newly existing pools, rules that have been under development for almost 15 years. new pools must be built with either a sloped entry into the pool or a pool lift under these new rules. for existing pools, owners will have to do what is readily achievable based on the size and resource of the owner's business. if it is readily achievable which is defined as easily accomplished to be carried out, a business should take the same steps to improve an existing pool. this means that if a fixed lift can be installed easily and inexpensively, it should be. if installing a fixed lift is too expensive or diffic
